After successfully melding animation and documentary (two cinematic vocabularies that appear incompatible) in 2008’s "Waltz with Bashir," director Ari Folman returns to the big screen with "The Congress," a live action/animation mind-trip loosely inspired by Stanislaw Lem’s novel "The Futurological Congress."

A Most Wanted Man
As the line between television and film gets blurrier, it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish exactly what makes something qualify to be a film at all. Particularly in the age of “Homeland” and “The Americans,” some may leave a slow-burning, understated spy caper like “A Most Wanted Man” wondering if it wouldn’t have been better served as a limited series on Netflix or HBO. And it will be a perfectly valid question. Based on the novel by John le Carré (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), the film is the new anti-thriller from director Anton Corbijn and centers on the war on terror in Germany via a tapestry of several characters, chiefly Gunther (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a grizzled counter-terrorist intelligence officer stationed in Hamburg after a previous fuck up in Beirut.

A Most Wanted Man
When it comes to government intelligence, it would seem that managing assets is just as important as catching criminals. And what happens when that line blurs? That seems to be the crux of Anton Corbijn's upcoming "A Most Wanted Man," and a new international trailer has arrived.

The Congress
It has been quite a wait for Ari Folman's "The Congress," with development on the project moving steadily if not hurriedly for a few years, before finally landing on the festival circuit last year. It has already opening abroad, won a European Film Award for Best Animated Film (a bit surprising given that it's partially live-action) and now it's finally coming to U.S. shores. And a new trailer has arrived.

A Most Wanted Man
The films of Anton Corbijn — well, the two he's made thus far, "Control" and "The American" — are marked by a careful, calculating style where every frame and every shot counts in the building of a particular mood or tension. And much of that seems the same in his next, "A Most Wanted Man," with the first trailer dropping today.

"Democracy is overrated," declares Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), and certainly in "House Of Cards," the machinations of the White House have little to do with the power of the ballot. And if you thought the stakes were high and the drama was intense in the first season, apparently, we ain't seen nothing yet.
